SEYMOUR, Ind. (July 6, 2015) – A truck driver was cited for speeding after causing a multi-vehicle crash on I-65 near Seymour last month.

Gary Oldenburg, 62, Gleason, Wis., was cited for speeding too fast to avoid a collision, according to Indiana State Police. Oldenburg was one of the six people hurt in the crash, which also involved a 2004 Pontiac Vibe and four other vehicles.

State police said Oldenburg’s truck rear-ended the Vibe, causing the chain-reaction crash. The Vibe spun in the emergency lane. The semi then hit a GMC Yukon and a Nissan Altima. The Altima crashed into a Toyota RAV4 and a box truck; the Altima was then wedged under the box truck after the semi pushed it forward.

The driver of the Vibe was airlifted to IU Health Methodist Hospital with head and leg injuries. The driver of the Altima had to be removed from the vehicle and was taken to a Louisville hospital with internal injuries; however, her 10-month-old passenger was not hurt.

The two people in the RAV4 were not injured and the driver of the box truck was treated for back pain at the scene and released. Oldenburg went to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour with a hand injury.

The June 24 crash closed the interstate for nearly six hours.
